A body was found inside a burning SUV on Monday in a sagebrush field in Richland. Reports say that Police and Fire responded to a call of a fire near houses around Crested Hills and found an SUV on fire that looked like it had rolled down an embankment. They found the SUV on fire when they arrived and it was upright near a walking path although they think in had rolled down the embankment and landed on its wheels.

Officials do not know how long the SUV was in the area or where it came from. The Benton County Sheriff is investigating.
